I have set up many desktop users with an extra internal hard disk for holding drive images of the OS partition only. It works very reliably with Acronis or Ghost. The thing I like about these programs is that they can be set up to run on a schedule and to save a user-determined quantity of drive images without further user participation.

I need something for laptops that is reliable and can be used by the technically-challenged. The problem with using Ghost or Acronis with an external USB drive is that USB drives will occasionally jump letters without warning and then Ghost or Acronis will fail. I also need it to be able to save at least three drive images and delete the oldest as it makes a new one.

Anyone have a solution for this?

Try DriveImage XML. The only issue with it is that there is no Universal restore function, but it still mirrors the abilities of Acronis, but is more lightweight.
